- Con artist, immortalized in Netflix ‘s Inventing Anna, spent two years in prison
Fake heiress Anna ‘Delvey’ Sorokin abandoned her super glam get ups for a more modest look as she stepped out in New York City on Monday.
The fraudster, 31, was snapped leaving her box-sized apartment to meet with her parole officer, the only time she is allowed out of her $4,250-a-month fifth-floor East Village home during her house arrest.
While in the past the socialite has made sure to make the most of her rare outings, dressing in eye-catching outfits including a silk dress and robe ensemble, on Monday she wore a simple grey sweatshirt and jeans.
Her hair was not done up either, as it was on previous occasions. One thing remained the same, however: Her ankle monitor was still visible on her right leg.

The con artist, immortalized in Netflix’s Inventing Anna, spent two years in prison for her crimes. The Russian-born Sorokin managed in October 2022 to convince a judge to let her out of prison while she fights deportation.
However, she is required to remain in her home 24 hours a day and must wear her ankle monitor at all times.
But she will not let the restriction stop her social life, saying last year that she will bring her elite circles of friends to her for intimate dinner parties each month.
She describes her weekly visit to the parole office as her ‘Tinder’ because everyone is always asking if she’s a model or famous, she told The Cut at the time.
Her house arrest is indefinite and she is not allowed access to social media or her own credit card and must have an accountant.

In December, it was revealed that the Fake Heiress was punished while serving time at the Albion Correctional Facility in upstate New York for ‘tampering’ with the unflattering tan-green outfit she was forced to wear.
A source close to her said that she was ‘just trying to be fashionable’ but fell afoul of the rules and was barred from doing any recreation or getting packages for 10 days as punishment for her transgression.
The source said that Sorokin tailored her prison clothes to ‘fit her better since they were too big and baggy.’
In a separate incident, Sorokin lost her privileges and was put under lockdown for two weeks after giving false information to a prison guard and disobeying an order.
The incidents show that Sorokin had a bumpy landing after being convicted in 2019 of financial crimes for stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from hotels, private jet companies and her best friend.
She served two years in prison before being released in February 2021, only to be arrested again weeks later for overstaying her visa in the United States.
Sorokin was freed for a second time in October and is currently appealing her conviction with the hope of staying in America.
Her disciplinary record was released to DailyMail.com after a Freedom of Information Act request to the New York State Department of Corrections.
It shows that there was an incident on August 27, 2020 at the Albion facility where Sorokin was accused of violating four prison rules.
They were that an inmate should not ‘lie or provide an incomplete, misleading and/or false statement or information’; an inmate should not ‘refuse to obey a direct order’; an inmate should not abuse their phone privileges and they should ‘comply with instructions regarding facility package procedures’.

The following month, Sorokin had a hearing where she tried to plead her case but the prison imposed punishment.
She was put into ‘Keeplock’ for 15 days, meaning she was confined to her cell – though unlike solitary confinement, she still had her possessions.
For 20 days she was barred from doing any recreation, she could not receive packages, was banned from buying items at the prison commissary and couldn’t use the phone.
Sorokin also lost use of her tablet for 20 days: each prisoner is given a device which is not connected to the internet on to which they can download movies and photos of friends and family.
The second incident happened the previous year, in July 2019, just two months after she was jailed.
Her offenses included possessing contraband clothing.
The rules state: ‘The altering of state-issued clothing or property is prohibited. An inmate shall be required to pay for state clothing or bedding that has been altered without authorization’.
The other two rules that she violated were that she should ‘obey orders without argument’ and ‘destruction of, tampering with, and theft of property’.
DailyMail.com understands that Sorokin’s violation was tampering with her jumpsuit to make it look better.
Prison officials ordered that Sorokin could not do any recreation, use the commissary, receive packages or use the phone for 10 days as punishment.

Sorokin’s life has been the subject of intense media scrutiny and was turned into a Netflix series, ‘Inventing Anna’, starring Julia Garner in the lead role.
The show detailed how Sorokin claimed she had a $60million trust fund and scammed her way to expensive trips and hotel stays, ripping off her best friend along the way.
Sorokin – who calls herself Anna Delvey – was released from jail in February last year after serving her four to 12-year sentence and went about returning to her previous life of luxury by renting a swanky apartment in Chelsea.
Weeks later, after bragging in a TV interview that ‘crime pays’, she was arrested by immigration agents and held in jail in New York State until she was granted $10,000 bail in October.
Since then she has moved into a small apartment above a payday loan shop in New York’s East Village, just 470 sq ft in size. Sorokin has to remain there for 24 hours a day while under house arrest under the terms of her release.
Her new home costs around $2,000 a month which is cheap by the standards of Manhattan, where average rents recently topped $5,000.
Sorokin has said she is ‘just hoping to get more freedom eventually’ as she is currently banned by a judge from posting on social media.
In one interview Sorokin said: ‘Maybe that’s for the best? It’s really hard to tune out distractions. Hopefully, it’s not forever’.
Reflecting on her crimes, Sorokin has said that she has a ‘different perspective’ on things than the last time she was released. She said: ‘I am regretful about the way things played out. The way I’ve tried to see my experience is to learn from it: Who I am today is because of the decisions I made in the past’.
She plans to sell artwork to make ends meet and is working on a podcast and a book about criminal justice reform.
